Restaurateur Heesung Kim launched The Embarcadero in 1995, naming the wine and oyster bar after San Francisco’s waterfront district. She wanted to capture the vibe of the California city’s waterfront dining zone and its love affair with Asian fusion cuisine. Her aim was to add some much-needed variety to what was then a steak-and-potatoes dining scene. Located a block away from the Scotiabank Saddledome, the restaurant is a popular spot with hockey fans.

The two-storey converted brick mansion retains a homey feel. With stained-glass windows, the large upper-floor dining room is filled with natural light. The casual fine-dining restaurant serves a variety of dishes from the popular Atlantic lobster served with lemon herb butter to rack of lamb with a thyme and Dijon mustard breadcrumb crust. The seasoned flame-broiled eight-ounce AAA Alberta filet mignon is another of the most popular entrees.

Oyster lovers can choose from six to 14 varieties of fresh North Atlantic and Pacific oysters. The icy oyster platter is topped with one of each oyster variety available on a given day, and a specially priced daily oyster feature is also on the menu.

One of the city’s original oyster bars, Embarcadero on the east end of 17th Avenue Southwest departs from its seafood focus on October 9 and 10. The restaurant in the converted redbrick mansion is a suitably homey place to enjoy a fine turkey dinner (takeout available). Free-range bird is served with accompaniments that include maple syrup and bacon Brussels sprouts, sausage apple stuffing, and garlic smashed potatoes. For dessert, savour apple raisin bread pudding with vanilla rum sauce.
